Solving the mysteries of bioscience
We are an independent nonprofit bioscience research institute aimed at unlocking the mysteries of human biology through foundational science.
Foundational Science Fuels Breakthroughs
We are leaders in large-scale research that transforms our understanding of human health and disease and shapes how science is conducted worldwide.
Inspiring Next-Generation Scientists
To us, open science extends to inspiring the next generation of scientists by supporting access to science resources, research, and experiences.
We explore the basic building blocks of humanity to gain insight into health and disease. We share our findings and data freely with scientists around the world because shared understanding feeds new discoveries and nurtures breakthroughs.
Our work unlocks the mysteries of bioscience.
Since 2003, our tools and resources have accelerated scientific discovery around the world.

We’re making an impact.
Our collaborative approach is reflected in our hundreds of scientific staff from dozens of different scientific disciplines. Together, we tackle large-scale projects that have generated over 24 petabytes of data – equal to 138 years of HD-TV video or 159 billion online photos. And our open science approach means all of our resources are available to the global community to catalyze discovery.

Our Progress: Annual Reports
Every year is a new opportunity to improve human health through science. When we step back to take stock of our progress, we gain greater insight into the scientific roads yet traveled.
While scientific progress and discovery aren’t typically contained within a calendar year, our Annual Reports offer engaging snapshot of the milestones in research from the Allen Institute.
